The Outside Zone of Yin at the Individual Coalescing Quadrants of the 8th-Person Perspective
The Yin Master at the Seat of Actualization at The Throne of Water at the Letter of Watching
Wæstmbæreɪ (from the Old English, Wæstmbære): Fruitful, Fertile, Productive
The War is over. Won or lost, the fruits of the conflict are now making themselves visible in internal and external ways.
The Warrior’s Work is not done, but entering a more fluid and meandering phase. In the evening of Violet Heart 10, a gentle breeze passes easily through or as if through the air, Wafting. And then on the morning of Violet Heart 11 at the Throne of Water, Wæstmbæreɪ.
The order imposed by the Warrior’s Will is gone; Wackiness is the new order. Life is funny and amusing in a peculiar way… We can see it now. We can see it in the cycles of the moon, once Waning in Yang, then forming a Wedge shape in Yin, and now Waxing. The moon increases in its apparent size as more of its surface is illumined at this time. It is beautiful and shines brightly in the darkness, lighting the way for noctural Wanderers in times of distress.
Wæstmbæreɪ is a key word for this station. It suggests fruitfulness, fertility, and productivity. The gentle breeze of Wafting has given way to productivity, often in ways that are immediately visible. Like the fecundity of a harvest of grain, life is sustained and enhanced in substantial ways … though not necessarily through human effort. Whereas the Throne of the Witness objectified the individual’s Will and the Throne of the World set that Will up against a War, the Throne of Water works differently. No one acts upon the moon to make it Wax, but it does; no one pressures the Wheat to grow, but it does. Invisibly, the causal forces are in play, circulating the substance of life and creating opportunities for novelty.
At the Throne of Water, individual and objective perspectives intermingle into harmony. The grain grows through invisible, internal processes … and yet the results are evident externally as well. The moon’s “interiority”, symbolized by the changing emotional states suggested by the changing apparent shape, is externally manifested.
